After Jackie got engaged and was suddenly a bride-to-be herself, she was shocked at the high cost of wedding dresses and quickly realized the wedding she had imagined (saw in magazines, Pinterest, and on bridal blogs) would cost a small fortune.
So, like any scrappy girl with designer taste, she looked for another way! eBay, marketplaces, sample sales; where were the end of season sales for bridal gowns? The 70% off sales for the Valentino and Elie Saab gowns she lusted after? She couldn’t find them, but what she did find were other women like her trying to buy and sell their wedding gowns and save money.
It felt like the bridal industry wanted brides to feel cheap or like they were breaking the rules by not paying full price for a designer gown.
In 2012 Jackie started NearlyNewlywed with the $$$ she got from reselling her wedding dress and the little money left after her own wedding a few months before. She launched NearlyNewlywed.com out of her living room with the support of her loving husband, family and of women all over the US who sent her their gowns and believed in what she wanted to build.
Every dress we help sell or bride we help get a gown she loves for less, is a building block to our bridal revolution.
We hope you enjoy shopping and selling on Nearly Newlywed and help us share the love!

When I started looking for a wedding dress, I knew the pre-owned route was what I wanted, but I wondered whether I'd find the right quality and fit. The dress I found on Nearly Newlywed far exceeds my expectations. It's gorgeous, in wonderful condition, and the listed measurements were accurate. It took just a couple weeks from when I ordered to when the dress arrived, and I appreciate that they took the time to verify authenticity and accuracy. Highly recommend!Sent on 02/06/2021

Would recommend Nearly Newlywed to my best friends
I always thought that it was rather strange and wasteful that so many of the most beautiful (and expensive) dresses people get to wear only see the light of the day once. And I was very excited when I came across Nearly Newlywed - a large yet easy to navigate collection of wedding dresses that come with photos of the dresses on real people. I found my dream dress, which was no longer available offline because the brand had gone out of business, and bought it. The whole process was very reasonable - I was given five days to decide whether I wanted to keep or return the dress for a full refund. I asked for a day extension because I could not schedule a consultation with a seamstress right away, and the seller agreed to accommodate me. Email communication with the seller via Nearly Newlywed was quick and easy. The dress was exactly what I expected and I love it more because I got it for half the original price and because it was a special dress for someone else at some point. I'd recommend Nearly Newlywed, where I found the one, to any of my best friends.Sent on 02/05/2021

I found my Pronovias wedding dress and paid half the price
For any bride looking to get a high quality dress on a budget, Nearly Newlywed is probably the best pre-owned wedding dress option. They were SO responsive (both via support chat and email), even though I was ordering my dress near the holiday season. Their support team was also super friendly and really great communicators which is a huge deal when you want to make sure a dress is going to fit, etc! Their biggest selling point is that if you order a dress and it doesn't work out, you can return it to the seller for just $50 which is so worth considering the money you'll be saving buying a pre-owned dress. I'm so happy that I'm recycling a dress that otherwise wasn't going to be worn again, and that I saved a TON of money!Sent on 02/06/2021
